But you know what? I wanted that biscotti, and I'll be darned if I was going the high and mighty route today. And it was worth every crumbly, sweet, nutty bite. That little bit of indulgence after a hectic start to the day helped put me in such a better mood! I felt productive, accomplished, and successful--and all I did was run some boring old errands. No doubt the sunshine contributed to my mood as well. Tonight I'm scheduled for a 3-mile run, and knowing that, plus having run 10 miles this weekend, I feel perfectly justified in my sweet splurge this morning.
Don't forget to treat yourself now and then. A little biscotti might turn your day around.
